Rackheath Exemplar

After preparing a masterplan for 4500 homes, LSI was invited to compete for a 200-home Exemplar satisfying the local ‘Rackheath Compass’ brief, by becoming UK’s first ‘water positive’ scheme, with a high green space factor.

A narrative of ‘Green Lanes’ guided thinking about phasing, landscape management, and all forms of water recycling.

LSI collaborated with landscape architects, Sheils Flynn, to develop a distinctive strategy linking community and landscape, and coined the name ‘Green Lanes’ for the proposals to reflect a green space factor in excess of 60%. Careful thought was given to defining an effective first phase.

LSI’s entry was the most popular, and formed the basis of continuing investigations.
